[Letter from J. R. Wild]

Sir—I have a strong disposition to think that there is always something in what your correspondent Mr M.C. Mitchell has to say. But his recent attack on your Art Reviewer, Helen Kedgley, is, I fear, unfounded.

Take, for example. Miss Kedgley's contribution this week. There is a photograph of what to me appears to be a diagonally shattered black square with two right angle lines and a prong sticking into a white background.

But, alas, I am mistaken. This, says the accompanying review, is an example of the artist's assimilation "of Pasmore's influence into his own personal vision". Aghast, I learn that "In contrast with Pasmore's characteristic quality of transparent lightness, Peebles animates the static forms of his constructions with strong carefully chosen colours".

This is great stuff.

Yours faithfully,

J.R. Wild
